Cheese for a Wednesday - pt 24 Breakfast Cheese!
Anyway, I finally got bored enough to dive back in to the wonderful world of cheese, and decided to start with breakfast. Why not? It's the most important meal of the day!
That adorable little white hockey puck (above) is actually an incredibly soft, delicious French goat cheese from the Midi Pyrennes called Cabecou. I know that Man Who Sneers at Goats (Cheese) won't like it no matter what I say, but this little cheese is so mild, sweet and spreadable that I knew it would be perfect for a woman sporting a bit more exposed gum than usual. The goats who help make this cheese nibble on hawthorne, mulberry and juniper leaves, making delicious, complex milk and a cheese perfect on english muffin with a little honey and an espresso. The flavor is subtle, and there isn't any of the "tang" that MWSAG(C) hates so much in goat cheese.
I tend to only think about cheese after dark, or in an elaborate omlette at Sunday brunch. The closest to a simple cheese breakfast I usually get is a tub of cream cheese and a bagel. If I could afford to have a refrigerator full of Cabecou, every morning would be as delightful as this one was!
How/when do you eat cheese for breakfast? Let's start a revolution!
